Old School Draw Go

Written by

 

 
Control has always been a thing in all card games. This is no different in Magic: The Gathering. Since the becoming times of Magic, control decks have been reigning supreme. It was until recently that the power creep for control cards have dipped to a near unexpandable deck archetype. But it's not to say that control isn't playable. It requires a hefty amount of mental capability to sustain the tempo of a control deck. One mistake and it will cost you the game as well as one bad draw will. Luck plays a big factor when piloting a control deck. Usually control decks have been fine tuned to survive what ever situation it is in if you do not mana screw or colour screw, the latter is if one chooses to go a multicolour route. Control decks have answers to literally anything, it's getting it in your hand and having the available resources to use them the biggest defining moment of a control players win or lost.

Taking a Step Further

Written by

 

Hi guys, today I will be touching on some key pointers and a little advice on deck building and fine tuning. A disclaimer; I am no pro player nor have I won any major tournament with a deck I brewed myself. I do however have experience up to a certain extent as I have played many different card games since TCGs caught my interest. In my opinion, every TCG which was and still is in the market has the same concepts and pointers in terms of deck building and side boarding. Now this article may not be much of a use to veteran players but I believe it will help our younger generations to make it where we are right now. Veteran players, this may be a refresher course for you so do read on if you find the interest! I will be touching on TCGs as a whole rather than focusing on one particular game.

Dragons on Tarkir, Zendikar and Innistrad.

Written by

They roamed the skies during Tarkir. They were the fearsome beasts from the east. Dragons are always an all-time favourite in the realm of Magic: The Gathering. They have the most utility support cards in the current format. All of which require you to either control a dragon or reveal a dragon upon casting. With the release of BFZ/OGW, dragons have stopped seeing much play unlike before. They are the terror in the skies but once dealt with, their threat is nothing compared to the might of the Eldrazi. But, with the new rotation around the corner, I believe that dragons will be seen roaming the skies once again.

Card Evaluation

Written by

Hello everyone, today we are going to talk about card selection. Most of the time, its easy to know which card is better by simply looking at the mana cost and effects. Like for example, a Lightning Bolt is better than a Lightning Strike because it's cheaper to cast, a Boil is better than a Boiling Seas because it's Instant speed. However sometimes, there are cards that are similar in effects and its hard to determine which one is better.

Weekly Brews: White Weenie

Written by

With the impending release of Shadows Over Innistrad, we have come to the new Standard format, where new decks will emerge and new cards being used to tackle the archetypes.

There is, however, one card that makes my White Weenie heart flutter:

The Yesteryear of the Five Clans

Written by

The evolution of Standard has always been evolving ever since it has been implemented in the world we call Magic: The Gathering. The flow of the game has always been dictated by the newest cards from the most newest set, and with the imminent arrival of Shadows Over Innistrad, some of the most important cards that defined Standard for a year and half will be gone forever, sucked into the crevices of all your junk folders, or making it to your Modern decks to shine even more.

The First Step

Written by

Hi fellow classmates, I’m Jeffrey, a friend of Team Classroom Adrian Tan. I’m considered new to Magic competitive scene as I started to play Magic since Khans of Tarkir and my competitive journey during the early 2015/2016 season’s Modern season. First of all, this is first time I piloted my deck to my first ever TOP 8 in PPTQ. I’d attended only 3 PPTQs so far due to location and budget issues, as I’m a student and I came all the way from Perak to join events.
